How Kathy is building a better working world 

It’s my view that as a leader, I am in service to not only my clients, but also my peers, my teams and my EY Consumer community. In this role, it’s important to me to mentor, inspire, and open up opportunities for the next generation, for women, and for minorities both inside and outside of EY.
